I thought it was a Snipe !!

This afternoon a flock of Meadow Pipits landed in my field at South Brent, when I went to take a picture I saw in the middle of the field what I intially thought to be a Snipe, however it turned out to be a Quail, I suspect an escapee from someones avairy as I was able to catch it without any real difficulty.
